The perfect accessory to any of our Small Suture Pads, the Tensioning Base acts to hold your pad in place conforming it to a rounded surface to replicate life-like surface tension of an incision. After securing your pad to the base, once cut, the incision will “open up” allowing the student to gain realistic access to the lower muscle and fascia layers for deep suturing. The bottom of the base features a tacky rubber to prevent your Base from sliding across the table mid-suture.
This 3D printed specimen shows the orbit from the lateral perspective when the bony lateral wall and part of the calvaria of the skull have been removed. The frontal and temporal lobes of the brain are exposed. In the orbit the lateral rectus (LR) has been divided to demonstrate the intraconal space. The muscle near its insertion has been reflected anteriorly to reveal the insertion of inferior oblique muscle (IO). The portion near its origin from the annulus is reflected to reveal the abducens nerve (VI Nv) entering the bulbar aspect of the muscle belly. Other features shown include the tarsal plate (TP), lacrimal gland (LG), the lacrimal artery (LA) and lacrimal nerve (LNv) and numerous other nerves and vessels around the optic nerve.
